Better get used to it. We literally hit the lotto twice with 18&12.
This is how most teams have it year in year out. Try to find a competent QB with a solid all around team.
The younger fans are probably having a tough time. 30 years old and younger are shell shocked.
No idea how old you are, I just meant for people like me who remember pre Manning, it's not a shock to our system as much, but it's kind of like becoming a 'regular' NFL team again.
I'll tell you one thing....I'll take a so called mediocre QB that wins a Super Bowl with a solid team around him than a once in a generation guy who doesn't ever win the big one. If Luck won us several Super Bowls, I'd feel devastated right now. Fact is...he didn't. Never even got us there. It's not his fault his career was squandered by Irsay & Griggson but it is what it is...he didn't win ish. So if Jacoby's Colts somehow manage to win one under Ballard's stewardship...what then?
Chris Ballard is the franchise guy in this organization. As long as he is at the controls, I believe the Colts can contend and effectively move on from Luck's departure.
